9781597562027: Translational Perspectives in Aduitory Neuroscience: Normal Aspects of Hearing

Virtually anything related to hearing that has a scientific basis could be included in a book so labeled, but this book is part of a mission to improve dialogue between basic and applied scientists so that health-related science can translate in many directions: from bench to bedside and vice versa. The editors are clinical audiologists as well as classically trained hearing scientists, who, are committed to the advancement of translational research. To do this, colleagues who work along each step of the scientific continuum, from basic to applied, provided information that was theoretically deep, but contextually broad. In some instances this meant pairing authors (clinicians and scientists) who would not normally write together and asking them to co-author chapters. A diverse group of students, post-docs, and scientists also interacted with the authors by asking questions and infusing comments during the review process. This process ensured both basic and applied material would be integrated. One example is the final chapter in the third book in the series on Auditory Plasticity and Auditory Training. Rather than simply review evidence of experience-related physiological changes documented in animal models, the authors chose to address the functional significance of auditory plasticity as it pertains to auditory learning . By simply revisiting the concepts of plasticity in relation to learning there has been a resurgence of interest in the area as it pertains to auditory rehabilitation. The challenge was to present the literature in a way that allowed us to ask the tough questions like Does a statistically-significant change in perception (or biology) necessarily constitute a functionally relevant change in behavior? More importantly, do the observed changes impact a person s ability to communicate? And does it impact their quality of life?

The result is a three-book series, beginning with: Book 1, entitled Normal Aspects of Hearing ; Book 2, entitled Hearing Across the Lifespan - Assessment and Disorders ; and Book 3, entitled Special Topics, which provides Translational perspectives on current topics in hearing science.

About the Author:

Kelly Tremblay, Ph.D., CCC-A is Professor in the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences at the University at Washington. She earned a bachelor s degree. in Psychology from the University of Western Ontario, Canada and a M.Sc. in Audiology from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Her interest in hearing science began in Colorado, as an audiologist who worked with hearing aid and cochlear implant users. Interested in auditory rehabilitation, she returned to school to learn more about the neuroscience underlying rehabilitation. She completed a Ph.D. at Northwestern University, followed by post-doctoral training at the House Ear Institute in Los Angeles, California.

Robert Burkard, Ph.D., CCC-A is Professor and Chair, Department of Rehabilitation Science, at the University at Buffalo. He earned his B.S. in Communication Disorders at Buffalo State College, and his M.S. and Ph.D. in Audiology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He did a post-doc in the Department of Biology at Washington University. His first faculty position (Assistant then Associate Professor) was in the Department of Communication Disorders at Boston University. He moved to the University at Buffalo, where he was an Associate then Full Professor, in the Departments of Communicative Disorders and Sciences, and Otolaryngology. He moved to the Department of Rehabilitation Science, in the School of Public Health and Health Professions, in 2006.

Book Description Plural Publishing Inc, United States, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Normal Aspects of Hearing is the first book in a three-book series focused on Translational Perspectives in Auditory Neuroscience. The book starts out with a chapter on acoustics, and the rest of the book focuses on the anatomy and physiology of the peripheral and central auditory systems in a rather traditional manner: from caudal through rostral levels, ending with the descending auditory system. Note that these chapters, for the most part, review topic areas that are best considered basic research and are not translational in nature. However, the final section attempts to tie perception to the underlying physiologic responses, and chapters are parsed into stimulus factors (such as intensity, frequency, binaural stimulation, and complex sounds). The second book in the series is Hearing Across the Life Span - Assessment and Disorders. The third book in the series is Special Topics and provides translational perspectives on current topics in hearing science. All three books in the series are also available to purchase as a bundle.
